Publisher's Summary

Jesus of Nazareth's announcement that he is the Messiah has blazed through Jerusalem and the surrounding countryside like wildfire. As he travels through Galilee, the crowds follow him, witnessing miracles and healings. Jesus teaches the parable of the lost sheep and the return of the prodigal son. He walks on the water.

But discipleship to Jesus the Messiah has come at a high price for both Simeon and Miriam. Tensions mount when Miriam is faced with a deadly choice: confess her involvement in the events at Joknean Pass and further sacrifice her relationship with her father, or remain silent and sacrifice her friends and fellow disciples to the Romans.

Meanwhile, Ya'abin begins attacking Roman columns in the Judean wilderness, and Mordechai and Marcus unite to face a common threat. But Mordechai has bigger plans than simply ensnaring the Desert Fox; he plots to eliminate the threat Jesus poses to his religion and his family. And if his plans happen to also eliminate Simeon the Javelin, so much the better.

The Kingdom and the Crown, Volume 2: Come unto Me is a story filled with passion and betrayal, action and sacrifice, friendships forged and relationships lost. It is a novel about coming to terms with the demands placed on your heart and about coming unto him.

Good story!

I was excited to find Gerald Lund's 2nd book in the series become available since I'd enjoyed the characters and the story of his first one, Fishers of Men. I love reading stories that help my understanding of what it may have been like to be living when Jesus lived, so it doesn't have to be a great story for me to enjoy it. It was an interesting story because of the variety of characters and perspectives so I did enjoy it.
I appreciate Lund's expressed attempt to be accurate to the text. However, in this quest, he chose to quote from the King James Version when Jesus speaks. That really bothered me because I'm pretty sure they did not speak 16th century English in those days, and it makes Jesus' conversations with ordinary people sound so stilted and formal instead of casual and natural, which is much more likely.
This is not my favorite narrator because he also speaks unnaturally... Very slow and deliberate, with long pauses, even in casual conversations. He has a nice reading voice to listen too, but I didn't like the way he did character voices, especially women and villains.

Like Unto Us

loved it! I don't think I've ever had a problem understanding the New Testament. But to hear it applied in someone's life made it easier to apply it in my life. Listening to this book allowed me to personalize the Savior's teachings far more than I ever have.

Good book, but akward reading

Good book, but reader's volume fades in and out as if he were constantly shifting his position relative to the microphone.

good story, poor quality recording

Love this series! Very much enjoyed the story. The recording did not include the chapter end notes as the first in the series did on Audible. And it announced the beginning and end of every "CD." The quality was poor; the sound would change from soft to loud every so often and I had to adjust my volume frequently.

Fantastic!

Beautifully written story. I especially enjoy the chapter notes where the author expounds on Jewish and/or Roman customs and traditions to bring relevance to some of the nuances of that time period.

I also appreciate the characters' ponderings on the teachings of Jesus. Many times the author's insights have broadened my understanding of the scriptures. I am grateful for that aspect of this series.

This is a story I can listen to over and over.

Great fiction along side history

The performance was hindered by "CD #... is finished. Please insert the next CD." Very irritating in the middle of the story line. They aren't even at chapter breaks but right in the middle of conversations.
